The DualSense’s battery life and absence of rear buttons would be a thing of the past if this patent becomes a real accessory for PS5.
A recently discovered Sony patent suggests that the PS5 controller, DualSense, could receive an accessory that would add two fundamental functions. Attentive to this image.
The accessory would be attached to the back of the remote, and would have a fundamental function: to charge wirelessly. It would be a adapter to which an external battery could be attached, so that it would charge by induction, without the need to have it connected to a cable.
But that’s not all, because it also seems that would include two X and O buttons housed on the back of the controller. These are buttons very similar to the recently launched accessory for the DualShock 4.
Thanks to this accessory, we can relocate two buttons on these extra rear buttons, such as the R3 and L3 if we do not want to press the Joysticks. It is a function designed to improve the accessibility of the controller very well received on PS4, so it is to be expected that it will also be included in an accessory for the PS5 controller.
On the other hand, being able to charge the battery while playing wirelessly (in the absence of seeing what price, power and weight the accessory has) will certainly please PS4 users who suffer from the short battery of the DualShock 4.
In any case, the fact that a patent is found is not synonymous with the fact that something will become a reality. If you are interested, here you can see the original document, which was archived in August 2018.
